It was a BIG freezer bag with like, 20 mackeral. And I didn't appreciate how many dang little tiny bones there were. We grilled it on Sunday night and each had a few fish. Then, we spent a couple of hours over the next 2 days painstakingly picking the meat from the bones. Monday lunch: mackeral salad sandwiches. Tuesday and Wednesday (tomorrow) lunch? Same thing. And...I think Thursday lunch too, then we will have kicked it.
I have to say, it's tasty, and I've gotten all my good omega-3's the last several days.
So, if you happen to find yourself the recipient of a bunch of mackeral: Spray some foil with cooking spray. Salt the fish. Grill on medium 8 min. Flip. Grill another 8 min. Serve with lemon and tapatio. And pick out the bones.
